Question about Computers & Internet
HI!!! I bought 16 MB SanDisk Cruzer so i could transfer files between my mac os x and other peoples pc windows computers... i took me ages to find out how to format it for my mac but no other computer recognizes it at all!!! HELP!!! I was assured that it would work on every type of computer without issue-this is a nightmare so far...
The problem lies in the file system
Format for Mac and use PC software that can open Mac format disks like TransMac http://www.asy.com .
Format disk as FAT32, both machines should be able to use it. A problem with FAT32 is that the largest file it can hold is 4GB.
Format with NTFS and use Paragons NTFS for Mac OS X http://www.paragon-software.com/home/ntf... .
hard drives are hard drives.
You are only going to run into problems if you format it and use a file system type not supported by one of the systems.
